Marketing and Entrepreneurship SIG Doctoral Consortium and
The UIC Marketing & Entrepreneurship Interface Research Symposium and The AMA Doctoral SIG
Sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation
This Doctoral Consortium is designed for new assistant professors
(less than 3 years since receiving their degree) and doctoral
students. New assistant professors researching the interface of
marketing and entrepreneurship are encouraged to self-nominate
themselves for this Consortium.
The conference committee is pleased to invite established faculty to
nominate doctoral students who are researching marketing and
entrepreneurship to the American Marketing Association Marketing and
Entrepreneurship SIG International Doctoral Consortium. This special
interest group of the AMA has a long history of partnership with the
annual UIC Marketing and Entrepreneurship Research Symposium. At this
year's Research Symposium, we are continuing this new consortium
tradition of encouraging and guiding doctoral students who are
considering or are researching the intersecting domains of marketing
and entrepreneurship. This consortium will be held in Chicago, August
5-7, 2008. The deadline to submit applications is June 1, 2009. Please
email your nominations to Glenn S. Omura at
Consortium Fellows selected for the consortium will have their
Symposium fees waived, have complimentary meals during the official
portion of the Consortium and the Symposium, and have their hotel room
expenses paid, for August 5th and 6th at the Symposium hotel.
Nominations should have the following attachments:
1) A letter of recommendation from established faculty (if a doctoral
student is applying).
2) A letter of interest from the nominee.
3) The nominee's curriculum vita, including dissertation topic if developed.
The nomination packets will be reviewed for acceptance by the Consortium Chairs.
The Research Symposium will have a portion of its official program
reserved for participation by the doctoral consortium students. It
should be observed that this event is separate from the annual AMA
Marketing Doctoral Consortium and the attendance of a doctoral student
at this event will not lead to disqualification from the regular
Marketing Doctoral Consortium program.
